Updating porch column why bitdefender is not updating
Inappropriate repairs or insensitive alterations, such as the enclosure of a front porch, can be equally destructive and negatively affect the porch’s appearance.The size, style, detailing, and location of a porch can tell volumes about the age and use of a building.Each component, from handrail or baluster to column or post, enhances the architectural character of the porch.Yet open porches are constantly exposed to sun, snow, rain, and foot traffic, and thus subject to deterioration, perhaps more than other parts of a building. Deferred maintenance and neglect account for the decay and loss of countless numbers of historic porches each year.
To order hard copies of the Briefs, see Printed Publications.Few architectural features evoke more romantic notions or do more to define a building’s historic character than the American porch.Alter or remove the porch and a historic building or streetscape can lose its visual integrity and historic authenticity (Figure 1). Distinctive yet different, these front porches are important features along the street.The rhythm would be diminished if the front porch from one of the houses was dramatically altered or removed. Functionally, a porch protects an entrance from the weather.
